It might have started with a woman. The margarita’s exact origin is widely disputed, but the one constant in most stories is a lady. A showgirl, a socialite, even Hollywood pinup Rita Hayworth have all been linked to the rise of this classic tequila cocktail. Stodgier liquor historians assert that the margarita as we know it today evolved from a popular 1930s drink called the Daisy. It was citrusy and strong. Also, “daisy” translated into Spanish is … ? You guessed it, margarita.
Living in Southern California, it’s easy for us to don a more casual, laid-back look. We can wear a uniform of Lululemon leggings paired with loose-fitting tops, and Nike trainers by Olivia Kim, only if we also have a fabulous handbag to match – preferably a lambskin Chanel drawstring bag or a Coach leather crossbody. Then, there are occasions when we must dress up. Galas, celebrations and even, a romantic night out, deserve the perfect outfit.
For years, I opted for effusively fragrant candles. I know. I know … there are more sustainable, eco-friendly versions on the shelves, so why buy something that is slowly killing me? Well, it’s simply because those candles smelled pretty. But, now I’m a mother, and my priorities changed. It’s time to opt for cleaner alternatives. I love candles. But I often find myself lighting one, letting it burn for a few minutes, and then I inevitably blow it out because the fragrance overtakes the house.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
